Real Vs. Steal | Chloe Drew Leather Crossbody Bag Look-a-Like | kyssmystyle.com

I’d like to give a huge shout out to gojane.com for looking out for those of us whose discretionary incomes aren’t high. I’ve been shopping on the website since 2009 and I can truly say that it’s one of my favorite stores and definitely where I shop the most. They give us regular folk a chance to have nice looking things without spending our rent money.

This blog post is about yet another dupe for a designer handbag. In this case it’s the Chloe Drew Leather Crossbody bag. It’s absolutely gorgeous! I’m always on the lookout for dupes and when I saw this Twist to Go Saddle Bag on gojane.com, I knew it looked familiar. I’d seen it in one of KTR Style’s  Instagram pictures. She’s one of my favorite bloggers. I love her style.

What strikes me about this bag is how cute and feminine it looks. It’s also a decent sized bag so you can fit everything you need in it. I didn’t buy this one because I bought a quilted bag that’s a look-a-like for the Michael Kors Carine leather shoulder bag. Only so many black purses you need.

Real Vs Steal | Michael Kors Carine Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag Look-a-Like

I totally hyperventilated when I first saw this bag. If you can’t already tell by my Real Vs Steal blog posts, I love designer dupes. When I find one, it’s a euphoric experience. I’m not exaggerating.

I made apurchase from gojane.com recently, and I was mulling over whether or not I should by a quilted bag. There was a nice one on the site, but I thought it was too small for the price. I googled “quilted handbags” in hopes of finding a deal. I came across the Carine Quilted Shoulder Bag by Michael Kors. I fell in love. I was even going to write a “My Favorite Handbags at the Moment” post just to feature this bag. A day later, I found a look-a-like for $50. It’s also available in red and beige. Let me tell you ’bout my God! I still think it’s a bit pricey, but I got it on sale. Furthermore, I was willing to spend the money for the gold detailing. To me, a quilted bag is a classic closet staple; I couldn’t miss the opportunity to make this bag my own.

In my opinion, all quilted bags are Chanel inspired even though this bag is a dupe for a Michael Kors bag. The gold chain detailing around the body of the bag is what distinguishes the Kors from a Chanel. The Kors bag has more of an edge than the plain Chanel quilted bags.

I also purchased a dupe for the Valentino 1973 Rainbow Vavavoom purse. One day, maybe next year, I plan on purchasing my first designer bag and shoe. Until then, I’ll stick to my look-a-likes.

When I first saw this bag, I knew that it was a dupe for a Valentino bag that I’d seen before. I did some research and found out that it is a look-a-like for the 1973 Rainbow VaVaVoom Shoulder Bag, which is now sold out. This rainbow style comes in a variety of purses, clutches, and handbags. I looked everywhere for it. I found only this clutch.

I love this bag and I’m all about outfits with statement pieces. Simply put, accessories make outfits and this bag is definitely the focal point in any outfit. That’s why I purchased the look-a-like from gojane.com. (It’s currently sold out, but hang tight. I’m 98% sure that it will be restocked. If you really want it, check often.)

Urbanog.com also has the bag.

Because of its many colours, it can match a variety of outfits. Fashion blogger, Tamara, of the glamandglitter.com, paired her Valentino purse with a green blouse, white culottes and pink pumps. In another outfit, she pairs the handbag with a pair of boyfriend jeans, a white coat, neutral striped top, and nude Valentino Rockstud flats. I also found a dupe for the flats a while ago, which can be found here. I think both outfits, which are pictured below, look great and they make me feel better about my purchase.

If you want the pieces in your outfit to match the bag exactly, I recommend you take the bag with you when you go shopping. That way, you won’t be disappointed if you buy the wrong color. I have my outfit for this bag already planned and I can’t wait to show you all.
